Power loss

by eagle134 / November 27, 2004 2:37 AM PST

I have a Toshiba satelite. I love it. However a couple of months or so ago I had a power problem. I discovered the male end of the power supply on the back of the computer had broken loose. I took it into Comp USA where I bought it and they wouldn't repair it!! Without charging me for it. I hadn't had it a year yet plus I purchased an extended warranty!! Anyway I got it repaired locally. I then started expieriencing power loss. The battery would drain even though it was plugged in. I tried removing the battery and it won't operate at all. So I took it back into Comp and they sent it off to be repaired. After a week they sent it back and I took it home. It lasted a day!!!! Then went back to doing the same thing. I turn on the computer and the battery is at full charge but with in a half hour. I am down to nothing. Now it has begun to give problems trying to re-charge the battery. There was a listing stateing that the XP patch might solve it but to no avail. Sorry this is so long any help would be greatly appreciated. P.S. (when i sent it back to comp they replaced or fixed the motherboard.)

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
